"In this post from our series on strategies for eliminating traditional grades, we feature feedback, using Google–a sneak peek at one part of the new Assessment 3.0: How to Throw Out Your Grade Book and Inspire Learning (Corwin, 2015).

Not many Moodlers use the Lesson Activity in Moodle. Mostly because it’s neither a brilliant quiz engine nor a replacement for the book module. But when you combine both these elements and spend a bit of time on the design you can create engaging, interactive learning packages that can stand their own against popular content creation tools, and best of all, it’s authored natively in Moodle.

The video below is about a 75 minute demonstration of advanced grading features as you would see them on a Moodle 2.6 site.

Moodle is a very powerful LMS, used by several organizations to manage their training programs. This incredible software is ranked as the #1 LMS product by the E-learning Guild, in terms of market share. A majority of learning management needs can be met in a cost-effective manner, using this open-source software.
Administrators play a key role in using Moodle effectively. Once the LMS is configured according to the needs of the organization, he will be responsible for all tasks pertaining to the LMS. The administrator has to manage existing course and users, as per the requirement and add new courses or course categories. Adding a course to the LMS is not as easy as it seems. He needs to configure all necessary settings such as restricting access to certain users, ensuring access only after the specified conditions are met, making courses available only after the receipt of payment (if the organization sells the course) and so on. The administrator has to test the course in all browsers and ensure that all functionalities are working fine. He also needs to check the access restrictions (if applicable).
Here are some of the duties of an administrator.
- Add or remove user - Create a course - Give limited access to managers and learners - Change default settings of an LMS - Alter default roles of a particular user - Add extra user-profile fields - Hide existing courses from learner - Create course reports - Create the “number of attempts” report - Download the user list - Download grade reports for individual courses - Change passwords for all users

I've been working on a new deployment of Moodle for Lancaster University for the past two years or so. Our project started out with Moodle 2.1, and we upgraded for our initial pilot to Moodle 2.2. Since then, we've upgraded from Moodle 2.2 to 2.3; and we're now planning the upgrade from 2.3 to 2.5. We manage all of our upgrades with git, and our deployment using Debian packages. I've been asked a couple of times to write about our upgrade methodology and reasoning so hopefully others will find this useful.
